After eight long years since the last original Mega-Man title came out, we have a launch date for the next game from Capcom. While they have recently launched the Mega-Man Legacy Collection 2, their newest game in the series, Mega-Man 11, has been announced with a trailer featuring that the game is available for pre-order and will launch on October 2, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
It's crazy to think of how long it has been since we had a new official title for the series, but it seems fitting with this year being the 30th Anniversary of Mega-Man as well. Check out the trailer and see how they kept the game in all its platforming, combat heavy glory:
Mega-Man 11 looks pretty awesome, but it isn't the only thing becoming available in honor of the 30th Anniversary. While the newest game will be available for all platforms, Playstation users get the added bonus option of using the Mega-Man Theme as well. Featuring the retro Mega-Man animated, the lab room, and even some classic music from the game, you can check out the Playstation Theme in its own trailer feature.
I hope that Mega-Man 11 will be as difficult as all the older games of the series so that not only would Capcom be keeping to the genre, but they would be keeping to what the series is known for. I love how Mega-Man 11 looks modern and classic at the same time as well.
Are you looking forward to getting Mega-Man 11 or the Playstation Theme to celebrate the 30th Anniversary?
